City of Seoul south Korea remove concrete around river and make a beatifull river walk inside city now is a totally different place bcz water and nature are here before us millones years or more
Mayors of LA let the canals deteriorate for decades
Just a note that your map is labeled incorrectly when it says "Griffin Park". It's Griffith Park. :)
I'm a 20 year Venice resident and I love the history of this small beach town.
We all know everything is covered up
LA sure likes paving everything.
My grandfather was chased away from Venice in the early or mid 1920s. I think he was very young but he also didn't fit the class of people that visited Venice at that time. There's many stories about the Venice canals being occupied by outlaw bikers sometime in the 50s through the late 60s. Police had a difficult time with them and would go there often. Some people were even murdered there. Hells Angels had a chapter in Venice and they're shown acting in a movie that was filmed throughout Venice in 1965 or 1967. The opening credits even announce their acting in the beginning of the movie. Satan's Slaves were founded at a bar somewhere between Santa Monica and Venice in the early 60s. I don't think it was safe or even nice back then. But my parents lived in the old, white apartment home on the corner of Rose and 4th in 1965. They said it wasn't dangerous around there but they weren't comfortable either. There were already gang wars between blacks and cholos way back then over drugs.
My Son lives 4 blocks from the Beach. Love to visit from Long Island NY.
Venice was once a nice place. That’s not the case anymore smh
Why are you using the same background music the Spanish guy who goes by the name "Divergent" uses here on YouTube?
🖕🏻BS Tartaria 💪
Fascinating! Tanks for sharing! Crazy thing about the canal was the smell and being used to dump trash! And during the 60's and 70's which were basically a ghetto!
"The Water Management was inadequate...[resulting in] foul-smelling and stagnant water...".
So, just like the real Venice, then...?
Had a Huge Water Park ~ Ferris Wheel ~ Water Sports ~ My Great Aunt Went There in her 1915 child's swim outfit ~ trolley car from Pasadena California ~ Millionaires Haven ~ But They already had swimming pools ~ Entertainment Parks were for the non millionaires ~
